My girlfriend's name is Ola, so it is used for girls too. It is Polish and a short or pet form of Aleksandra. [noted -ed]

The girl in Michael Jackson's Thriller video, who played his girlfriend, her name is Ola Ray. I don't know if it's her real name, but it sounds great!

Not AW-lah but oh-la.

Since it sounds like the Spanish word for hello, Ola looks silly as a name.

The Ola whom I know is originally from Lithuania and her real name is in fact, Aleksandra.

As opposed to being pronounced identically to the Spanish word, Ola, the "ohh" and "lawh" are significantly emphasised, being stressed to a greater extent, subsequently making the name sound a lot softer and more feminine. "OHH-lawh"

Ola sounds very exotic and realistic when said by someone with a remotely North-East European//foreign accent. I hate saying the name myself because my accent is too unstimulating for these foreign names, but when said with a rich accent, Ola is beautiful!

Very unintuitive. I'm Polish myself, but I actually didn't know that Ola is a diminutive for Aleksandra. I thought it was a name on its own.

Definitely unusable in Brazil since olá is Portuguese for "hello". I'm a Brazilian of Polish heritage and I admit, I was surprised by the listing of Ola as a Polish diminutive.
